As a retired woman, I love living in Cordele GA. Throughout the years, I’ve taken countless trips on the historic SAM Shortline Excursion Train, which normally travels from Veteran’s Park to Americus, but frequently features specialized trips with entertainment and fireworks.
I’m a frequent golfer and play at Georgia Veteran's Memorial Golf Course situated on the shores of Lake Blackshear. This is the best area in Cordele and after a relaxing game; I stop by the Cypress Grill at Lake Blackshear Resort. This lakeside resort has many recreational activities close by like hiking and fishing. I hosted my daughter’s wedding at this venue and many well known artistes regularly perform here.
Shopping for my family takes me to Cordele Square where there's a good selection of stores and a five-screen movie theatre. Our Farmer’s Market sells and distributes watermelons all over the US. Although this is only a small town, we have a lot going on, new housing shooting up, small businesses changing hands and unfortunately an above average amount of petty crime.
